10th - 11th May 2019
This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
You come to this Karaoke night every week anyway; Titch welcomes you in with a joke, young Kevin lives out his dreams of stardom, Caroline does her big number. But this week Rick’s got a secret about the future of the club, and the songs tell you more about the regulars than they might have wanted you to know. “
I’ve seen what this wee machine can dae tae folk. Folk that are normally shouting aw the odds can crumble. Folk that never raise their voice above a whisper suddenly belt it oot… just cos a backing track comes on and a mic’s in their face. It tells them something about themselves that even they hadnae realised.”
Musician Gav Prentice writes and performs solo for his first play following a residency with the National Theatre of Scotland, bringing the sounds of a real night out into the theatre with original songs.
